Seems I have fallen into a world ruled by women in this particular venue, not that I mind. I have always felt more comfortable around the opposite sex. My father was in the Navy, so we moved around a lot and I was raised mostly by my mother and grandmothers. <br /> <br /> As to a biography of sorts, have been a sailor (USN&nbsp;- Vietnam Veteran, by trade an electrician, by assignment an administrator, a base police officer, a fire marshal and fire department chief, a recruiter, and an engineer aide.), a police reserve officer, a sales manager, a factory worker, a district supervisor, and currently a car salesman. My travels have led me across the United States, overseas to Vietnam, the Philippines, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Diego Garcia, Hawaii, Hong Kong, Singapore, Pakistan, Somalia, Kenya, the Isle of Mauritius, and various locations in Mexico. <br /> <br /> I&nbsp;love to write, love poetry and art, and love to talk to people about the &quot;forbidden&quot; topics of Sex, Politics, and Religion. Only the topics that invoke strong emotions are interesting. <br />
